I don't mean to steal the thunder of the other New Year's PIF, but I have a kit of my own that I want to send to a member of the community. It's very basic, but it will get the job done for someone new to wet shaving. And once they upgrade, they can send it along to another new user like I'm doing now.

This kit contains:
A Gillette Flare-Tip SuperSpeed - date code E3
A Van der Hagen Luxury boar brush new VdH Deluxe boar brush (not pictured)
A new tube of C.O. Bigelow shaving cream
A pack of Derby Extra blades
A pack of Gillette Silver Blue blades

There's a few conditions for entry:
-Entrants must be in the CONUS (sorry int'l folks)
-Entrants must post "I'm in" in this thread
-Entrants must have at some point created a thread about themselves in the Introductions forum.

That's it! It's not much, but I've already gained so much from this forum that it's only right that I give something back. The contest will end at 11:59 EST January 9th, with a winner selected randomly from the valid entries on the 10th

I'm in the same boat, a sophomore trying to give a freshman a leg up. And I downplayed it in th OP but this equipment is solid. The brush was my daily driver for over a month and I still like it, and the SuperSpeed is a classic.

Hey guys, I'm making a small modification to this PIF.
I've decided not to give away the brush listed (it was a gift from SWMBO, so it has sentimental value).
In its place I will provide a brand new Van der Hagen Deluxe boar brush.

Still plenty of time to join, so jump on in! Odds are looking pretty good right now.
